I have a 2006 shogun sport and sometimes when i start it , usually first thing in morning but not always i get a really bad rattle .If i turn off engine straight away and then start it again it usually goes , but if i dont turn off and just drive it appears to dissapear after about 3 miutes . Ive checked the oil obviously and thats fine but apart from this problem the car runs and sounds sweet.
Hi,my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you with your question.
From what you are describing the issue that you are having is one or more of the lifters are not priming up correctly. This is likely due to weak lifters however what you can try first is to have the engine flushed.
